    IIS 7 Accessing files through http

    HI Folks,

    I've FTP'd some files into a subfolder called flashfiles of a virtual directory. There is no host name assigned to the virtual directory just an asterix.

    Can anyone please tell me the address I can use to access files I have uploaded?

    Can I use the IP address somehow? When I try and browse to the files. http://xx.xx.xx.xx/flashfiles/video.swf I get a 404/403 error.

    Can anyone please help?

    Many thanks

    404 and 403 are very different. One says it isn't there, the other says you don't have permissions.

    There isn't a magic solution here, you need to ask the administrators what they have configured for accessing the files over HTTP.

    Thanks very much for your reply.

    Is there a way I can find that out myself?

    I have admin access to the webserver and IIS

    Oh, if that is the case then it is pretty easy -- go into IIS admin tools figure out where the FTP site is writing files. If it isn't web accessible, then make it web accessible by creating a virtual site or directory as appropriate.
